Halle Berry is a ''machine''.

The 47-year-old actress is currently juggling filming new TV show 'Extant', promoting her film 'Frankie & Alice' and caring for her children Nahla, six, and Maceo, five months, but doesn't think her workload is too much for her as women were ''built to multitask''.

She said: ''I know I'm not alone. Women have done this forever. We are built to multitask. When you think, 'How can I not sleep, nurse and work?,' you just do. We are machines like that. We are built to do this.''

Halle - who has Maceo with husband Olivier Martinez and Nahla with ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry - was delighted to bid farewell to her ''gypsy'' lifestyle and stay rooted in one place to work in TV, even if she does work long hours.

She told People magazine: ''I no longer can afford to have the gypsy life. This [show] allows me to stay home and still do something really creative and cool that I love.''

''My kids can come visit me and I can tuck them in at night.''

The actress recently admitted she is trying to find ''balance'' in her life.

She said: ''What I'm learning to do, trying to do right now, is find the balance.

''My baby is always with me on set. I bring my daughter after school. I have a nursery there, a playroom for her, so I try to make it as nice as I can for them to spend time with them, see them.''
